What is Title IX?

TITLE IX OF THE EDUCATION AMENDMENTS OF 1972 STATES:

“No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.”

Did you know that Title IX isn’t just about equity for students who play sports? In fact, it covers an area that affects employees and faculty members at work, as well. Title IX creates equity for faculty, staff, and students. It covers sexual violence, sex or gender-based discrimination, including stalking, relationship violence, bullying, and sexual misconduct.

The regulations regarding  Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, can be found on the Department of Justice website.
